A Study of Perceptual and Attitudinal Change Within a Course on Adult Education Methods.
Menlo, Allen
A study was made of personal changes in 50 graduate students in education, public health, social work, psychology, business administration, and public administration, and public administration who took a special 15-week university course in adult education methodology. Major course objectives were to help class members (1) to see themselves as able to aid other adults in their learning, problem-solving, and decision-making, and (2) to perceive other adults as having the potential and basic desire to take responsibility for their own learning and development and behave constructively toward others. Learning events involved the total group, ad hoc subunits, permanent "home-based" groups, permanent out of class triads, individual outside reading of distributed articles and self-chosen books, individual and small group consultation, and ad hoc work committees. Gains in positive self-perception and in readiness to share leadership with others were significant; the influence of self-perception on changes in readiness to share leadership were not significant.
